MEDIA REVIEWS

As professors of literature, we are teaching the highest demographic risk group for suicide. An important book dealing with this problem is Jeffrey Berman's Surviving Literary Suicide. Berman raises the significant and too-rarely-asked questions about the ethics of teaching this particular theme.--Elaine Showalter, author of Teaching Literature


Berman's sensitive and insightful exploration of the various aspects of suicide constitutes a major contribution to pedagogy that will also affect the lives of his readers beyond the classroom in positive ways. The book is extremely readable, written with a clarity and grace that are lamentably rare, even among English professors.--Mark Bracher, editor of JPCS: Journal for thePsychoanalysis of Culture and Society
